NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) – A young Nacogdoches boy has been honored for his role in helping law enforcement nab a suspected thief.

Sheriff Thomas Kerss says when you do a good job, in his book, you should be recognized for it and that is exactly what he did for 8 year old Madi Simmons. Tuesday afternoon Kerss presented the youngster with an appreciation plaque for alerting his father, Jerry Simmons, when a stolen plane landed on a private air strip near their house.

That tip brought deputies to the scene, which led to an arrest in a major case.

Kerss commended the young boy for his awareness and quick action which illustrated a civic minded individual. Madi was told he is certainly a good citizen.
